During last year's Summer Olympic in Beijing, Nike debuted a slew of technical feats that till a few years ago, were just pipe dreams of engineers. This includes LunarLite, the foam midsole which mimic trampoline-like effect, generating significant energy return that helps propel runners into their next stride. Another was the Flywire Technology, which took its concept from cables on a suspension bridge, the high tensile thread embedded along the upper provides utmost support with less material. Thus, drastically reduce the footwear overall weight. However, never the ones to rest on their merits, the product developers at Nike went back to their design schematics soon after the Summer Games. Now, close to a year later, Nike will launch a entry on its product evolutionary ladder - the LunarGlide+
The new Nike LunarGlide+ running shoe fused the mentioned LunarLite midsole and Flywire Technology, in addition to a new innovation - Dynamic Support System (DSS). By optimized the LunarLite foam and encapsulated it in a Nike Free outsole, the LunarGlide+ accomplish somsthing once thought impossible, a running shoe with amble stability and cushioning. Its arrangements also provide 1 additional benefit, less weight, with Men's measuring at 10.6 oz. while the Women's weighing in at mere 8.6 oz. Both version will make its debut next month at selected Nike retailers and Tier-0 account holders with a suggested retail price of US$ 100.
